Won't create account, infinite stuck loop, useless hardware, will return to Amazon. Tested on two phones pixel 2 and Samsung Galaxy 8. Pre alpha app, non-functional
Does not work with Google Pixel 1. Apparently caused by a bug in Android Oreo 8.0.0. Useless app and device if you can't set it up... :/
The app no longer auto updates since the latest update. I have to close the app and restart it if I want to see updated stats.
I have no idea why people are knocking this device. You won't find another Co2 meter for under $300. I have the pixel 2 and have no problem connecting through wifi. Absolutely love the historical data. My only wish is that I could set parameters to turn the plug OFF, not just ON. For example, turn on the fan when temp reaches 80, turn off the fan when temp reaches 65. Other than that, these units are great.
The device looks extremely pleasant. Unfortunately I had to use another phone as Oreo (android 8.0) didn't allow me to connect to the device via Bluetooth. This is not awair's fault though since it is a general android oreo bug. Once you use another phone to do the initial pairing, you can use your oreo phone to connect to the app. The rest of the communication with the device is done over the wifi network. Once paired, everything worked perfect. At least until I unplugged it and moved it to a different room. The VOC was stuck on -189 for a full day. And the wifi was very buggy (blinking purple dot every five minutes or so). Had to physically reset it in the end. It seemed like all the other measurements were also off in that period. Temperature dropped by ~4°C after the reset, CO2 shot up from 200 to 400 etc. The wifi problem also seems resolved now. The reset seems to solve all these issues, but doesn't increase my confidence. Awair firmware version is 1.2.6 and the app version is 1.6.0. The settings menu is also not completely clear. Display setting temp/hum doesn't seem to work. The knocking feature is also not really explained.
Not working on Oreo, app developer needs to push Google to do fix in step with it's users. Unit has been plugged in for a month and is ultimately useless.
